Our desire is to develop fully devoted followers of Christ
who make disciples. In light of that vision, we are very passionate about
helping every person who attends CMBC to take their next step. No matter where
you are on your spiritual journey, there is always another step to take towards
being fully devoted in your following of Christ. There is no one prescription
for spiritual growth because everyone is different. But there are some basic
areas to consider. It is our desire that each person intentionally participates
with God and others in this transforming process. We invite you to consider what’s
offered at CMBC and how that may be used by God to mature you in the faith.
